This is a curated list of public-facing social media policies available in Australia; Britain; Canada; Italy and the U.S. It is also a work-in-progress and updates will be tweeted as I add more guidelines.

*The guidelines must be available online to be included*

ABC Australia Exhaustive and excellent.

Agence France Presse Seems outdated on the separate accounts information but some good advice on security.

The Associated Press Exhaustive and excellent – particularly on retweets. Bookmark.

BBC Britain In a nutshell: “Don’t be stupid.”

CAJ Canada One for the NUJ, SPJ, MEAA, EPMU etc to emulate.

CBC Canada More about damage to the brand than a guide for journos.

ESPN Must for aspiring sports journos.

La Stampa, Italy In Italian. :-) English translation (Thank you to Alessandro Cappai)

LA Times Last updated 2009.

NPR Guidelines Comprehensive and clear.

PRISA, Spain. In Spanish :-)

Reuters Some English humor in this doc!

RTDNA V good but could do with update.

Washington Post Great resource.
